A video playthrough and review by Medve:

No, Station 51 is not Area 51, and has no aliens, what a bummer. BUT, there are Combine soldiers...and a lot of 'em. Yes, mostly you are going to shoot innocent soldiers, who are just doing their job (spoiler alert: trying to kill you), but you will also encounter some zombies and Xen creatures.

The strongest part of the map is probably the layout. It's not too linear, and keeps it interesting with secrets. It keeps your attention, and of course you don't have to find small objects in big warehouses (which is kind of a fashion nowadays). It's one bigger map, not even sure how did he manage to create such a big map in this engine, but in the end it takes about an hour to finish. Short, logical, has secrets, has plenty Combine to kill. If you haven't played it yet, go ahead.


Download at ModDb and the brand new RunThinkShootLive (formerly PlanetPhilip) headquarters.

I'm going to go right ahead and say that I don't remember last time when I played a HL2 mod which kept surprising and challenging me on almost every corner. The gameplay is really great, and I was really surprised how long it took to see the first "Loading" screen. I think the Airboat part might have been a bit longer, but it's being recompensated by being a frequent victim of ambushes. The balance is also pretty good, I spent most of my time using Shotgun and Gravity Gun but there were moments when I was glad that I have found Crossbow earlier in the game. Level Design on it's own is also on a high level, the only thing I could complain about a little bit was separating the map from the skybox with the big rock props which didn't made a lot of sense in some spots, also the factory in the background was mostly flat, I thought it could use some little roofs or whatever to just make them look less dull. But those are details really, overall the game is great and I was VERY pleasently surprised.

This mod was very well thought out. I had fun the whole time playing it, and I only wish it was longer. I loved the idea of going through a portal to escape. I can't wait for more, cuz this is just so fun. Also, for my taste, this has some replayability. Good job to the developers of this mod, your hard work has paid off. :)

Hey guys, sorry for all the problems!
Turns out the issue seems to be the SteamPipe conversion. I have new downloads and a news post awaiting admin authorization that should fix the problem.
I had to update the gameinfo.txt to work with the new SteamPipe format.
As soon as the downloads are authorized, download it and let me know if it works.

I was pretty impressed at the start. The mod jumps right into the action with snipers, combine, dropships, etc. No tedious learning curve, since MOD-players are experienced players. The good design puts monsters below you, under you and make them flank left and right. After that the MOD sadly starts to decline. Before the zombie part you have to shoot the energy ball to unlock the door. There is no reason for that advanced security to be there and what makes it even more strange is that the gravity…
